Oh, Dub On

This I got from the mail.


You Are What Hope Looks Like To A Bird.

Join Audubon Today.


The way I look at it, it’s the other way around: I see more hope looking at a bird. Haha.

I frequent a certain Walmart at a nearby city and one of the main reasons is because I get to see the kind of bird below. They happily haunt the parking spaces and are unafraid of the customers there. With their chirps and calls and warbles (I guess that’s the word), they fill the atmosphere with an indescribable pleasantness. Oh, wouldn’t it be wild to be able to understand them!

For a long time, I didn’t know its name and not only until recently, through sheer luck searching online again, did I finally learn it.


A female Great-Tailed Grackle in flight. | Hipstamatic, Tinto 1984 and Uchitel.

Quiscalus mexicanus or the Great-Tailed Grackle. The females come in shades of brown; the males, pitch black. Their vocal harmonies — something to cherish.

Will I join Audubon, you asked? ❧
